Overview

Don’ts for Husbands, Don’ts for Wives is an amusing compendium of the sound and not-so-sound marital advice given to men and women nearly a century ago.

For husbands: Don’t flirt with other women. Your wife may or may not be jealous, but she will certainly despise you if you do. Don’t try to ‘drive’ your wife. You will find it so much easier to lead her.

    Written in 1913. Good advice today.

    Although my husband and I don't partake in "smoking in the drawing room" or awaken early to "see if the maids are stirring," wisdom is still wisdom - even if it's been 100 years since the first words were written. This book contains a series of proverbs designed to improve marriage. And along the way give us a glimpse into how little the foundations of marriage have changed in the last century.

    Wonderful Little Read - Good for Gifts!

    A fun wonderful little read! You'll either nod in agreement or chuckle at some of this marriage advice from 1913!
    One of my favorites - "Don't scowl or look severe. Cultivate a pleasant expression if Nature hasn't blessed you with one."

    I'm planning to use it as great valentine's, anniversary, or wedding gift for some of my fun loving married friends and family!

    I loved this and thought it totally interesting

    I picked this up thinking it was going to be a good read, but totally non useful for today's standards of marriage. I was very wrong. While some of the things in there only apply to women who are homemakers, there are quite a few things that working women can benefit from too. It reminds us in quite a few ways that not only are we married, but should also be best friends with our spouse. It reminds us of an era long ago that people had proper was that they saw fit to do things and that haphazard wasn't in their vocabulary. It's give it 100% or don't do it at all. It is equally viewed from both sides of the coin, for men and women, and instructs both sides with fairness. It was a good read over all.

    Some things never change

    The advice for a good marriage is the same now that it was then. This is a good short reminder for those who have been married a while and a good primer for those just starting out. If we followed this book, we would all live a better life.
